great place for large family reunion that consisted of 40 people from age 80 to 1. The lake access and trampolines were fun. Kids loved the playground and it was nice to be near the bike path as well.

The beach is the greatest feature, but the lakeside rooms with picnic tables to accommodate all families are wonderful. Activities for the kids were well organized. the staff does a good job of keeping outsiders off the beach.

Stayed during off peak season for a week. The rooms and grounds are extremely well maintained and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. There's a nice beach area and several walking paths near the grounds.

I stayed with my family here in the Two Room Lakefront Suite suite during this memorial weekend and found it very clean and pleasant.Its fairly inexpensive when compared to other place with a lake front. Its not crowded, at least when we were there, we had the whole beach and boardwalk for ourselves. The staffs were very helpful and kind.... More

Crescent Beach is a great place for families. It has an awesome beach mere footsteps from the rooms. In fact, I would say that CB has one of the best beaches around. It is small and it will get crowded, but it's a nice beach, not rocky. This is not a 5-star hotel. It's a family-run establishment with guests who... More

The pros are many at this family resort-with very few cons. We are a family of 5 and have stayed at many resorts, condos, and cabins in Okoboji over the last 15 years. Crescent Beach is a clean "lake cabin" type resort geared towards families. You name it-they have it! Bonfires to boat hoists, tennis to paddle boats and everything... More

I read the other reviews and discovered that people's expectations really vary!! We have stayed at Crescent Beach for over 25 years. We have weathered floods, wind storms, management changes, etc. but one thing that has never changed . . . if you want a relaxing vacation on the lake in Okoboji, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. It is pricey,... More

Went for three midweek nights on the way to the Black Hills with a family of six. Staff was always friendly and available. They were very accommodating with our large family. Beach is nice, but a bit on the small side. But largely made up for by a large patio that runs the length of the building. You can step... More

Stayed one night very disappointed. With taxes, you pay nearly $400 per night. In the two rooms there is a 13" TV in one and a 9" TV in the other. Are you kidding me? Also, the old fuzzy TVs are up in a corner where you can't even see it while sitting on the couch or any bed. All... More

This is a great resort for families! It's right on the lake. It has a very nice play area for the kids. No resteraunt, but that was okay with us since everyone there grills. They have organized activities for the kids. The staff is very friendly! Close to Arnold's Park. We are definately going back!
